Permanent Closure of Railway Station Frontage to Vehicles
By Dunedin City Council | Posted: Tuesday June 11, 2019
The Dunedin City Council is proposing to permanently close the area in front of the Dunedin Railway Station to create a pedestrian mall. We’re writing to you to let you know about this proposal and explain what it means for people visiting or working from the station.
Following the two trial closures last year and this year, the Dunedin City Council is asking for further feedback from the public, businesses and other stakeholders on a permanent vehicle closure. You will have the opportunity to provide a submission on this proposal and tell us your views in detail.
The proposal is to retain access for pedestrians, cyclists, motorised scooters, mobility scooters, maintenance vehicles and for emergency service vehicles only.
If the area is closed, four coach parks will be provided at the end of the station on State Highway 1/Castle Street between the Railway Station and Toitu, and two at the southern end of Anzac Avenue near Castle Street. One taxi stand will be provided on lower Stuart St outside the courthouse. There will be mobility and short-term drop-off/pick up parks at either end of the station, and cyclists will be able to ride through.
A Statement of Proposal and a plan of the Railway Station is attached.
We welcome your submissions on the proposed permanent closure. Read the attached proposal and make a submission from 10 June to 5 July online at www.dunedin.govt.nz/consultation.
